2013 X-Marathon 054

X-Marathon Lives Up To The Hype

Every year I like to fit an interstate race into the calendar.  In the past, this has generally been Max24, but with the Adventure Junkies organising a 24hr race during what is otherwise a relatively quiet time on the racing calendar, X-Marathon was to be it in 2013.  I’d heard a lot of good things […]

Darkside Report

It’s going to take a while for me to fully digest my experience from the 2013 Darkside race.  In the end we ran a close 4th place in the mixed (5th overall) being beaten out by Infinite and Tiger Adventure by 2 and 5 minutes respectively after over 12 hours of racing.  Ultimately the result […]

The Finish.

GeoQuest 2013

Just a quick report from GeoQuest on the weekend.  The team met our goals, racing to fourth place overall (and first mens team) in a time of 31hrs 27min.  On a personal level, I struggled with my health, both in the lead up and in the race itself, and I was a definite anchor on […]

2013 Godzone 106

2013 Godzone: Chapter 2

So Godzone 2013 has come and gone, and all I can say is that this was the race that I came to New Zealand for.  The course was perfectly constructed – each stage unique and epic in its scope and terrain.  As a team, we entered with the simple goal of finishing the full course […]

The Rogue Squad Tackle GeoQuest 2012

The GeoQuest adventure race probably represents one of the greatest tests of an AR team’s skills and ability on the regular Australian calendar.  The location (on the NSW mid-coast), length (up to 50 hours) and incorporation of support crew (allowing a linear race format) give this race a real adventurous feel, and I look forward […]

Darren’s take on Godzone

I’ve been a little slow to get this up, but below is Darren’s race report from Godzone. He goes into a little more detail on what we experienced through the race in his own “unique” style. Words by Darren Smith: buy viagra online I thought I’d be sitting here trying to write this race report […]

Godzone Adventure Race Report

The inaugural Godzone Adventure Race would have to go down as the toughest event I’ve done by a clear margin in my, admittedly limited, adventure racing experience. In saying that, it was also the most stunningly beautiful course I’ve ever raced on. The race was characterized by its epic trek legs: up to 50km long […]
